Lucasfilm to hold meeting over Princess Leia storylines

January 6th, 2017 by bash Comments
According to THR, Leia was to have been a bigger part of Episode IX than VIII and that two key scenes were planned for those movies.

However, now discussions will begin on whether to have the character written out and her scenes reshot or perhaps introduce CGI in a way similar to Rogue One.

“I have no doubt, given some of the recent work I’ve seen, there are filmmakers who will be willing to take up the challenge,” sayssaid Michael Fink, an Oscar-winning VFX supervisor who teaches at USC. But, “so far, we have seen moments of success but not full performances.” He says there’s also ethics to weigh: “Should we create additional roles for Princess Leia? I don’t think so”.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
